India has always stood tall with its head high when it comes to protecting the civilians from all kinds of external or internal breaches of security. The attitude of our Armed forces has always been “DON’T MESS WITH US!” Considering a sub-continent that is surrounded by water bodies on three sides, with a coastline of 7,517 kilometres, the Indian Navy doesn’t really need a special mention. 4th December is celebrated as Navy Day in India and today we take a look at some of the stamps of India that feature Indian Navy Ships!

Humans have always thrown their weight around, carrying loads of ego with them, thinking that they own the planet. But the matter of the fact is that we are almost like a needle in a stack of piles and piles of hay, in his infinitely expansive universe. Astronomy and space expeditions have helped us understand about the beautiful celestial bodies that surround us and their evolution over time. India has been one of the leading countries in contributing towards space research. The space agency Indian Space Research Organisation ISRO was established in 1969, headquartered in Bengaluru to harness space technology for national development, pursue space science research and planetary exploration. The idea was envisioned in 1962 by India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru and scientist Vikram Sarabhai. Let’s take a look at some stamps of India which depicted missions undertaken by ISRO.
The subcontinent of India is blessed to be located geographically so strategically that, everything seems to fall in place for vibrant flora and fauna to thrive abundantly. India is home to hundreds of species of birds, most of which are native to certain regions and not much movement has been seen outside their homelands. Every species has a distinct habitat which they are accustomed to. Forests, mountains, coastal areas, marshy areas, plains, plateaus and cities, each one of them has their favourite breeding region, and India offers all that variety. Not just that, biodiversity of India can also be attributed to the fact that different parts of the country experience different climatic conditions. The more or less warm climate of India is what attracts migratory birds from all over the world. We had shared some interesting facts about these beautiful migratory birds that were featured on stamps of India in one of our earlier blog posts. On 17th October 2016, 4 stamps of India were issued, ranging from a denomination of 5 rupees to 25 rupees, depicting endangered birds of India. Let’s know a little about these flying beauties!
